Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen Sep-28-16
29 years old, USCF rating ~1750. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

dumbgai: <HMM> More like a boxing match. One game every 6 months, please.

dumbgai: <Sokrates> Well, there are some on this site who harshly criticized me for saying Kasparov would have easily beaten Ponomariov.

dumbgai: Stan Vaughan (Trump supporter?) attempted to ask Donald Trump a series of questions on Twitter, but sent them to a parody account instead (and with bad grammar, to boot): He also seems to be a firm supporter of the Confederate flag, even though

dumbgai: There's no way that black is anywhere close to losing after 34...Kd5.

dumbgai: Tan Zhongyi and Guo Qi also won individual gold medals for board 4 and reserve, respectively. When 4 out of your 5 players win individual gold or silver, it's no surprise that the team would win overall. Still, it wasn't easy, with many close matches, tough games and narrow escapes.

dumbgai: What a disaster of a game for someone rated 2750.

dumbgai: <Is Chucky Cheese playing?> <Is Aronian's team playing?> No and no.
   Aug-02-16 Ding Liren vs W So, 2016
dumbgai: <On 32...Kxf7 33.Qc4+ and the trade of Q's (Qxc4 bxc4) is forced, and there is nothing to stop the black b-pawn from queening.> I probably shouldn't have laughed at this, but I did. I laughed hard.

dumbgai: Popilski beat Kamsky in Calgary, in a game where Kamsky must have gotten his move-order wrong in the opening:
   Jul-28-16 Svidler vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: <abuzic> Yes, that was a missed opportunity by Svidler.
